Simi apologises to fans over poor organization at Lagos concert


The Live in Lagos concert was held at The Balmoral Convention Center in Lagos and was slated for 06:00pm but according to reports, she wasn’t present, not until about five hours later – this coupled with disorganization at the event, left her audience disappointed.

As she apologized, the singer revealed that the mishap wasn’t intentional as there was an event that took place the previous night and so it was not so possible for her team to organize and set up the venue in so short a time.

  19. She is just a green horn when it comes to events organization. How the hell will you book an even for just one day for an event of such magnitude.
    She just want to cut cost at her expense.
    A proper show in Lagos need at least 3 days concurrently for set up before the d day.

    I have worked in an event organizing outfit.for some shows , it like like 2 days to set up the light alone, bot to talk about stage set up, lights, costumes etc she also needs ample time for sound check.
    I hope she learns from this blunder.
